Our Impact

protecting original design

Knockoffs are not just the theft of an idea - they are the theft of opportunity for designers and the companies that support them. That’s why we work with U.S. Customs and Border Protection to stop counterfeits before they enter the market. Thanks to our work together, the USCBP office is better prepared to stop knockoffs directly at the border, protecting American companies and jobs from both intellectual property theft and economic damage.
